Summary: I finally upgraded to this 10.2 megapixel camera. The main reason for getting it was the 1280 high def video recorder. I thought it was 60 fps, but the HD is at 30, which is better than the average 15 fps. It does shoot 60 fps at 320. You cant beat the 10x zoom, and this incredible lens.
Summary: This camera has been very good so far in the time that I have had it. It takes good to great pictures depending on the situation. It takes HD 720p video. The best part of it in my opinion is the zooming capabilities. It is a fairly compact camera, but it has a megazoom lens.
Excerpt: I first came across the Samsung WB500 digital camera while browsing the shelves in Tesco for a new Satnav, I had saved for a new Satnav for a few months and strangely enough I came away that day with a camera instead of a Satnav…. That’s exactly how weird I can be!
Pros: Lovely to hold, takes fantastic pictures and it's very reliable !
Summary: I have been using this camera for over two years now and I just cannot seem to stop loving this camera. It is a little bit chunky in size compared to canon ixus or other slim ones, however, I think its built-in optical zoom works brilliantly compared to other small ones.
Summary: A chunky, well built if not overly stylish camera which feels comfortable to use. Not a slimline item for tight pockets but not as obvious in use as a SLR. Plus features; easy to use in auto mode and not hard to work around the other mode options. Excellent optical zoom to x10.
Excerpt: Ah, great product. The zoom is superb, that is expected from a 35" Schneider Lens. The picture quality is great, even in full zoom you can achieve a crisp image. It simple to use so don't worry if you're not good with electronics.
Excerpt: WB500 Samsung digital camera DSLR in the film 'Honey I Shrunk kids' but with a fixed lens. The look is off a DSLR with the raised corner and the big lens. The camera is stron with thick metal around it, i have dropped this device several times and still works perfectly.
Summary: This camera has it all. HD video recording. Stereo sound recording. All metal body, including the tripod mount and battery cover + hinges. This really is a smart piece of kit. The camera was the size i expceted it to be, and the weight was fine.
Summary: Absolutley fantastic camera! I am quite a critic when it comes to cameras as I have had several within the last few years which have either died on me or have just not done the job. I was looking for something which was great at taking videos as well as photographs.
